Bespoke builds do not get more unique, than retrofitting a tree support to an existing (flowering) Wisteria that had caught the brunt of the harsh weather conditions. The pergola that supported the plant had seen better days and collapsed leaving me with a dilemma. I did not want to lose the Wisteria. I was recommended to speak with Etienne as his skills in metal work are renowned by the people that know him. Etienne made a visit to assess the problem and very quickly measured up and suggested a solution. I had every confidence and was pleasantly surprised as to how quickly the tree support was manufactured and delivered, with all fixings and fittings necessary to complete the job. Strength was key to this working and Etienne devised a method where 2ft threaded pins with welded base plates were supplied, they were then concreted into the ground with post-fix. Double locking bolts were then installed to the top of the pins allowing me to achieve a level. The result is better than I had imagined and most importantly is incredibly sturdy!
